Alexis Wright, M.A.
I am a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in Georgia (AMFT 000628). Being an associate therapist means that I am currently under the supervision and direction of a fully licensed therapist, Dr. Kara McDaniel. I am also a certified special education teacher of thirteen years as well as a youth minister for ten years.
My journey to becoming a therapist has been full of excitement and exploration. I am a people person and enjoy talking and learning new things about others. My life’s journey has afforded me the opportunity to create connections with many as a therapist, special education teacher, and minister. One of my favorite parts of my job is the connection that I am able to create with my clients.
The connection that is created between a therapist and client is golden. I believe it is the catalyst for change and growth. My goal is to provide therapy with a relaxed atmosphere where my clients can feel comfortable to be authentic so growth can occur. My therapeutic style is direct with humor and compassion with a systemic viewpoint.
My Area of Specialty
I have a passion for working with individuals, couples, and families with special needs. I work with clients across the lifespan in navigating challenges in their relationships, sexuality, education, and aging. I have been trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy levels 1&2.
